SEAC EQ-PRO VINCE IL BEST BUY 2020 DI SCUBALAB:
Despite its hefty appearance, the EQ-Pro proved to be both lighter and more streamlined than we expected. Keeping its profile tidy is a modestly sized air cell that tapers above the waist and has a horizontal bungee behind the back plate. Steadying things are side panels that slide along the waistband, keeping the harness snug while reducing squeeze, and giving the EQ-Pro a well-balanced feel. As one tester noted, “It stays where you put it.” It earned a very good score for comfort, and an excellent score for stability. It also took top scores for surface floating position. The integrated weights were rated very good for loading and good for ditching, with some testers finding the release buckles a bit stiff. One gripe was a bit of extra inherent buoyancy, and some testers noted they would have preferred an adjustable tank valve strap to aid positioning. With impressive performance making it one of the favorites of multiple testers, the EQ-Pro is our Best Buy.
